This charming older gentleman in the most beautiful golden—almost camel colored—coat would be a wonderful cat for someone who enjoys the company of a quiet, independent friend. Although Gus did live with another cat—and a Chihuahua--in his previous home, it has become apparent that he’d prefer a more solitary life where he can nap and nibble as he pleases. He likes to have his head petted and enjoys jumping into bed early in the morning, especially when his tummy tells him it’s time for breakfast. Gus, a perfect gentleman in an imperfect body, is blind in one eye (since infancy) and is being successfully treated for hyperthyroidism (he enjoys taking  his chewable thyroid medication—yum yum!).

UPDATE January 24, 2013: Gus has been adopted by the mom of his dreams!
